Believe it or not, the James Bond movies have been around for just about fifty years now, spanning 23 films. Global Watch Shop has an nifty guide to all of the tactile gadgets of the British spy presented in the only way people view facts on the internet - an infographic!
I don't wear a watch and I hate time and yet I'm still so very impressed with the movement of this watch by FP Journe. It's stunning and it is the most complicated watch that FP Journe makes because it's a grande sonniere watch. Which means, it's a complication that is able to audibly chime out the time.
The Suunto Ambit2 (HR) won't read you your email and doesn't know Will.i.am's phone number. But, it will tell you your precise location anywhere on earth and powerfully monitors your physical exertion. How many beers did that climb burn? http://indefinitelywild.gizmodo.com/achieving-hima...
A multitool you can wear on your wrist? Neat! But, will it actually be useful as, you know, a tool? I don’t think so. This is manly wrist fashion, not a genuinely useful wearable.
Polar has come a long way since its first fitness tracker, the Polar Loop, launched in 2013. Just months ago the Finnish company released the Polar M400, a lovely and capable GPS running watch with 24/7 fitness tracking capabilities. It was sweet enough to earn a coveted spot on our Best Fitness Trackers list. Today,…
For years, I've wanted a smartwatch: a device that would blend style with digital convenience. Unfortunately, the first crop of smartwatches have predominantly been bulky pieces of plastic and glass for which adjectives like "elegant" seem disingenuous. But the Asus ZenWatch is evidence that things are getting better.
While Apple announced that the base model of its forthcoming smartwatch would cost $350, it's remained tight-lipped about the pricing of the rest of the range. Now, a new report suggests that the stainless steel version will start at $500, and the gold at somewhere between $4,000 and $5,000.
Whenever Apple announces something new, companies will use the most basic specs revealed onstage to take a stab at making What You Need to go with it. But the Apple Watch is even crazier; despite not even existing yet, more than a few companies are already accessorizing for it.
The worst-kept gadget secret in recent history is no longer secret at all. The new Fitbit Charge, Charge HR, and Surge fitness trackers are official. Here's everything you need to know.
We first heard about will.i.am's foray into the world of smartwatch-esque wearables back in April, but we had… questions. What was that mysterious cuff on his wrist? And could it really do all the things he promised? Today he unveiled the Puls. Welcome to fashionology, people.
Apple's just released a new version of its Apple Watch design video. While that's not newsworthy in itself, it's interesting to note that it's also reduced the screen size of the watch that's on display, too.
One of the Apple Watch's nifty features will be its Apple Pay integration, letting you tap-to-pay right from your wrist. Yes, that means the sensor-laden smartwatch will be connected to your credit card—but there's a nifty trick to prevent would-be thieves from stealing your credit card if they nick your watch.
Battery life is generally the slowest thing to test on a gadget, and it's almost always the toughest to get right. There's just no way to rush it, and there are just so many variables regarding how people use a particular gadget that it's always one of those "your mileage may vary" type of situations. Last week,…
Because you are not allowed to be a company anymore if you don't make an activity tracker, Epson is getting in on the action with its first two entries into the product category.
